Music: Playa - Gravy Train



Guess what song Playa sampled this track on, and I might just post the song for everyone as a bonus with the interview that's going to be conducted tonight!

EDIT: Yung Major got it correct! The track is "Gravy Train", which is undoubtedly the most popular unreleased Playa song. A lot of people heard a 2 minute snippet of the song from the Def Soul Sampler back in 2001 and assumed it was produced by Timbaland (which probably contributes to the popularity of the track, just because Timbaland has a huge following himself). However, the track was NOT produced by Timbaland, but actually by Keybeats (the people who did most of Aaliyah's last album).

We spoke about this track during the interview we had a couple of days ago. I'm not sure if it's on any of the ones I've posted yet, but I can tell you right now that this was going to be Playa's first single off their second album. There were also considerations in putting a young Ludacris on the track.

And like promised, here is the song in full CDQ. Another exclusive for all of you.




Oh yeah, I've also added a Music Centre (in which you can find on the left side of the screen under "Additional Links"). In there, you will find some songs that I have posted on this blog along with the full 2 hour interview DJ Slam and I did with Neeze.

    This song was recorded while we were in Austrailia working on the Aaliyah album. The whole concept came because everthing over there was all good. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING! Shout out to Rapture and E. Seats!

I've heard back in 2005 somebody talk about that "Suppertime Mixtape", but i found it in 2008, & unfortunaly, the mixtape was just available in mp3 format.
Released with no real promotion (but Louisville resident as i know, had this mixtape for a while), i guess lot of us didn't know about it until lately.
This is for the hood lovers, got Lil Flip on it, Young Sears productions, it's OG Music here! We also got Playa songs on it.
I guess Static wanted to give us just a taste of what Suppertime could be, the "Vol. 1" meaned it had to has other volume coming, but for this one like i said, it's OG Music except the last track...




Edit: You can listen & buy the mixtape here

UPDATE: So we…
